  • Opponents of Desert Rock sue over access to records

    By Felicia Fonseca
    Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP)

    Opponents of a proposed coal-fired power plant on Navajo land claim federal agents have violated open records laws by withholding information related to the controversial plant and a coal mine that would supply it.

    Navajo Nation’s Dine Power Authority and Houston-based Sithe Global Power have partnered to build the $3 billion Desert Rock plant in northwestern New Mexico. The plant would be capable of producing electricity for up to 1.5 million homes in cities across the Southwest.
